Drabble Challenge #79

Prompt: leap

The apocalyptic storm--complete with car-rocking winds, darkness, hail, distant tornadoes, the constant flicker of lightning--mirrored the turmoil of the day-to-day world left behind.

Survival was anything but certain.

The Universe spoke.

"Do you trust me?"

A long pause. Nothing but the real answer would do.

Yes. Only You.

"Then you are where you're supposed to be. Lean into it."

So much power contained within this simple message. Like the Native American adage "let the wind pass through you", it advises that true suffering in life is achieved through avoidance. The wisdom resonated...

And the world changed forever.
